what a fun day. i ran to the top of the great wall of china. that is 1.6 miles. in fact i did not really fun i sort of walked. it is up hill you know! ok, fine, if you insist, i was pulled up the hill. (by two people, one of which carried my backpack.) it was a good time and i am ready to get some BBQ, PIZZA, and of course some TACO’s. i now know why fat people do not live in china. it is really hard to manage to eat enough to gain weight! i am thinking of all of you and hope that you are all doing really well. i am not sure why, but i wake up everyday at sunrise and then am tired all day. go figure!
